Please take the time to carefully read the following as it contains important information that we are required by law to provide to you. As this includes information about our charges, if you do not have private medical insurance but someone else will be paying your bill, you may wish them to review this page on our website. Please note that even if someone else is paying your bill or you have private medical insurance, you are responsible for paying any charges, which the insurer does not pay.

Self Pay

Consultation Fee

The fee for an initial consultation will not exceed £300 and the fee for any follow-up consultation will not exceed £200.

Following your consultation, you may need certain tests (such as blood tests or imaging, for example an X-ray, MRI or CT scan) to help diagnose your condition. The fees for those tests will be determined by the clinic or hospital and charged to you, or your private medical insurer, separately.

If there are any fees, which we charge in relation to any of the tests that you are advised to have, we will let you know what those will be.

Surgery Cost

If you decide to proceed with surgery, we shall provide you with a package cost which will include hospital fees, surgeon fees, and anaesthetic fees. This can vary between hospital.

Private Medical Insurance

Mr Tibrewal is recognized and approved by all major insurance companies.


A letter of referral from your GP/Physiotherapist is usually required by your insurance company in order for them to authorise a Consultation. Further authorisation is usually required for any specialist scans or treatment. Patients are therefore advised to contact their insurance company prior to their Consultation and before any investigations or treatment, so that they may obtain an appropriate preauthorisation number.

Policy Excess

Patients who have excess on their policy will usually be responsible for paying this, but are again advised to confirm this with their insurance company.
